SPIECES: Stepwise Procedure for Incorporating Environmental Consideration into Engineering Solutions
MetadataShow full item record
Concerns about exploitation and deterioration of natural resources and emergence of unprecedented social problems have created a need for reevaluating the way engineered products are designed and how they impact the environmental systems. Concurrent design methodology is an interdisciplinary approach that simultaneously takes into account technological feasibility, economic profitability, environmental sustainability and societal values for finding optimal design solutions. The objective of this work is to develop a methodology by which designers can identify, quantify and integrate environmental and societal considerations in their design solutions.
